One stamp...2 cards....and a winner!

So I have this gorgeous DeNami Leafy Vine Wreath stamp that I haven't used yet!  I have to be honest and say that it was kind of intimidating!  I have seen some gorgeous cards with this but didn't know how to pull that off myself!  So I just dove right in and stamped a couple wreaths and got to work!  I have 2 cards today for you...same layout...basically the same card...different colors!

Here is card #1...

This one is kinda springy, mabye wedding-y, Eastery etc...I love these soft colors and usually don't pull these out but I actually made this card first!  I am not sure you can see but the wreath is full of little pearls!  And let me tell you how easy this was to color!  Super simple quick card!

And then there is card #2...

You know I had to throw some red in the mix!  If I would have had a little Christmas sentiment this would be the perfect Christmas card!  I added some glitterly pearls and then some red rhinestones too!  So glad I tackled this stamp!  I would have to say it makes a really pretty fast card!  You can find this wreath HERE

Just a quick reminder to play along with the DeNami Theme Challenge!  You can find more info about that HERE!  Three lucky winners will get a DeNami Gift Certificate!  Don't miss out!!

And one more bit of stamping business today....I recently held a card challenge on my blog and I was so excited to have some super talented ladies play along with me!  (I tried to figure out the random number generator and how to post the picture of the winning number but that was a no go!  Couldn't figure it out!)  SO, the lucky # was 7. Laura Bassen!  Congrats Laura! Email me at ll_willison@yahoo.com so I can get your prize to you!

Thanks to everyone for playing along!  I had some requests to do this again and so I just might have to do another Card Aisle Inspiration Challenge soon!

Have a great day!

    I wish I'd had time to make a Card Aisle Challenge card. I totally ran out of time, even though I found a perfect card!! I will have to make sure I do it for your next challenge ;)
